Lyrics
I’ve been so many places in my life and time
Sung a lot of songs that I’ve made some bad rhyme
I’ve acted out my love on stages
With millions of people watching me
Now we’re alone and I’m singing this song to you

I love you in a place where there’s no space and time
I love you for in my life, you are a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remember when we were together
We were alone and I was singing this song to you

You taught me precious secrets of the truth witholding nothing
You came out in front and I was hiding, hiding
But now I’m so much better, if my words don’t come together
Listen to the melody because my love is in there hiding

I know your image of me is not what I hope to be
I’ve treated you unkindly, baby, oh can’t you see
There’s no one more important to me?
Please, can’t you see through me?
Now we’re alone and I’m singing this song to you
Now we’re alone and I’m singing this song to you
Now we’re alone and I’m singing this song, I’m singing it to you

Yes, sir, I am, I’m singing to you, baby
Singing to you, baby, oh, for you, baby
Oh, yeah, singing this song for you

Català – Una Cançó Per Tu
He estat a molts llocs a la meva vida i temps
Cantat un munt de cançons que he fet, algunes males rimes
He representat el meu amor als escenaris
Amb milions de persones mirant-me
Ara, estem sols i t’estic cantant aquesta cançó per tu

Et vull en un lloc on no hi hagi espai ni temps
Et vull a la meva vida, ets el meu amic
I quan la meva vida s’hagi acabat
Recorda quan estàvem junts
Estàvem sols i jo t’estava cantant aquesta cançó per tu

Tu em vas ensenyar preciosos secrets de la veritat, sense amagar res
Et vas posar al capdavant i jo estava amagada, amagada
Però ara estic molt millor, si les meves paraules no surten juntes
Escolta la melodia perquè el meu amor és amagat dins ella

Sé que la teva imatge de mi, no és la que jo esperava ser
T’he tractat cruelment, noi, oh, no veus
Que no hi ha ningú més important per mi?
Si us plau, pots veure a través meu?
Ara, estem sols i t’estic cantant aquesta cançó per tu
Ara, estem sols i t’estic cantant aquesta cançó per tu
Ara, estem sols i estic cantant aquesta cançó, l’estic cantant per tu

Sí, senyor, sóc jo, estic cantant per tu, noi
Cantant per tu, noi, oh, per tu, noi
Oh, sí, cantant aquesta cançó per tu
